Issue overview This section highlights the basics of the HB 249 Drug Overdoses bill and policy that may act as one of the most important solutions that Florida may implement based on the desire to monitor and control the issues pertaining to a drug overdose as well as substance abuse. The primary aim of the enactment of the policy or the introduction of the bill revolves around the desire to come up with a set of laws that permit the various bodies to report the cases of controlled overdoses to the respective parties. Also, to offer immunity to the people who in the FLORIDA HEALTH LAW ISSUE 5 end offer information based on good faith and but not limited to the desire to guide the various healthcare centers. Besides, organizations such as hospitals that operate with emergency departments on the development of practices that in turn would offer support to the prevention of drug overdoses especially, in the case of unintentional use. Various parties such as the Florida Pharmacy Association among other lobby groups came together with the aim of providing the required level of support to the mentioned legislation which would, in the end, would play a huge role in the provision of a conducive environment for eliminating and dealing with the rampant issues of drug overdoses. Based on the given foundation, one can conclude that the primary aim of the provision, enactment or implementation of the policy will play a critical role in informing the relevant players in the field of healthcare on the issues affecting the general population concerning the increased cases of drug overdoses. While addressing the issue of drug overdoses which forms the primary foundation and purpose of the creation and enactment of the policy mentioned above, numerous scholars in the recent past conducted studies that meant to outline the current state of health concerning accidental drug overdose cases in Florida. On the other hand, addressing the issue of drug overdoses in the state from a grassroots level will play a critical role in informing the relevant stakeholders on the best practices. Subsequently, to take when it comes to providing a longlasting; solution for fighting and assisting the affected parties., numerous reports claim that Florida stands among the states that recorded high rates of drug overdoses. In this case, the term overdose may refer to the various resulting conditions that may bring about physical but not limited to emotional illnesses to the affected parties. FLORIDA HEALTH LAW ISSUE 6 In this case, various stakeholders may need to take part in the entire practice which would help to create a conducive environment for understanding the best practices to implement with the aim of reducing the overall level of suffering to the affected populations. Drug overdose and abuse in Florida remains as one of the primary issues of concern that affect the most substantial part of the population. Various stakeholders in the legal and healthcare sector among other parties such as the lobby groups seek to gather information that may create a conducive environment for understanding the ultimate practices that may be implemented with the aim of dealing with the rampant issues of drug overdoses in Florida. The following section highlights some of the relevant pieces of work conducted by numerous researchers revolving around the issues of the policy and the underlying concepts such as drug overdose cases in Florida. As mentioned above, the primary aim of the enactment of the policy revolves around the desire to come up with a set of laws that will facilitate the reporting of drug overdose cases in the affected region while at the same time implementing the best practices to protect the population against such vices. On the other hand, the enactment of the policy basis its arguments from the basics of the prevalence of drug overdoses not only in Florida but also across the entire country. Research conducted by Darke & Hall, (2003) sought to gather information about the prevalence of heroin overdose in the country. in the research, and the authors focused on issues such as the primary reasons that may bring about the witnessed rates of increased prevalence of overdose of heroin amongst the populations. In the research, the authors highlighted that heroin overdose accounted for the most significant part of the witnessed premature deaths in the country. On the other hand, the authors described some of the population and demographical data as well as factors that may help to determine the level of prevalence of the issue within the country. Through the exploration of the p[ast research as well as evidence, the authors managed to gather FLORIDA HEALTH LAW ISSUE 7 information that related to the prevalence of the issue highlighting some of the most common factors that result or accelerated the problem. Other issues that the study focused on, in this case, revolves around aspects such as the purity, polydrug use, and drug tolerance while at the same time looking at the cases of suicide and routes of administration. Addressing these aspects played a huge role in giving the researchers a good platform for understanding the effects of the mentioned factors on the witnessed mortality rates amongst the selected populations. Basing the arguments on the mentioned background, the legislation in Florida sought to create a solution that in the end would offer the required strategy that would not only help in the reporting of such cases but also in the reduction of the mentioned issues from the general population. From another perspective, the authors explored the potential impacts that the rising cases of overd0pze in the country bring to the various stakeholders and agencies. For instance, the authors confirm that the increased rates of overdose in the country affect not only the government but also the community as well as the healthcare sector at large. In addition, the primary causes of the increased cases of overdose may come from the reduced level of concern and mechanisms to gather such information from the general public. This statement implies that the lack of a reliable policy that would empower the affected parties to report cases of unintentional overdose and hence abuse remains one of the major causes of the witnessed cases as mentioned. It then follows that based on such finding, creating a policy would play a huge role in that it would help to empower the healthcare organizations into reporting and to deal with the rising cases of overdose especially, in Florida concerning the issues of heroin and opioids among others. It is important to note that the authors, in this case, provided an opportunity for the paper to explore the foundation for the creation of the policy. In simple terms, FLORIDA HEALTH LAW ISSUE 8 the details given by the authors form the basis for explaining the motivation behind the development of the policy mentioned in the previous section. Kennedy-Hendricks, et al., (2016) conducted a study meant to gather information about the overall impacts that opioid overdose concerning the crackdown carried out by the various legal agencies in Florida on the issue of pill mills. In the paper, their author carried out a research that meant to compare the data gathered about the p0resncription of opioids among other drugs in the various states such as Florida and North Carolina with the aim of coming up with a high level comparison of the perceived and probable changes in the mortality rates from the general populace;lotion. After gathering the information, the research found out that the increased legal actions carried out by the state and federal agencies in Florida contributed a positive impact to the witnessed changes in the death rates. For instance, the death rates of the affected populations in both Florida and North Carolina reduced significantly with an increase in legal actions taken by the associated agencies. In this case,m one can conclude that the increased legal action in the state made a significant improvement in the reduction of the overall deaths as a result of an overdose. For instance, the study found out that the increased legal action resulted into a decline of a total of 1029 lives that were saved from the impacts of the prescription overdose of the various compounds and drugs such as opioids among others. After considering the given information and findings, it then follows that an increase in the overall level of interaction and action between the various law enforcement agencies and the underlying healthcare organization may play a considerable role in the overall reduction of the total deaths that may arise as a result of a prescription overdose. It is important to note that the paper initially mentioned the issue of overdose remaining to be among the major problems that affect Florida today. The witnessed FLORIDA HEALTH LAW ISSUE 9 problem of increased cases of overdose came from a rise in the prescription of drugs for cash other than for the primary purpose of treating the affected parties. In Florida, the issue of pill mill gave rise to the witnessed problems associated with increased mortality as a result of a clinical drugs overdose. The authors, in this case, explore the effects that the increased legal activities may bring to the death rates in Florida based on the issue of combating the pill mill. Another study completed by Rutkow et al., (2015) try to gather and document information revolving around the effectiveness of the various laws that are meant to reduce the cases of overdose coming from clinical and medical prescriptions amongst the populations in Florida. The authors first highlight the fact that Florida suffers and exhibits a high level of overdose concerning the various drugs [rescribed to the patients and the population. Further, the study continues to claim that the government in the state and the entire country implemented many laws meant to curb the issue from the population. However, the authors claim that despite the efforts put in place by the government, there is little to no success witnessed in the state concerning the reduction of the overall death rates from the general population. The authors continue to say that the increased cases of overdose from the general population come primarily from the lack of support from the relevant authorities that may help to control the level of prescription and effectiveness of the implemented laws. The paper, therefore, claims that the enactment of the mentioned policy as highlighted in the first part of the paper comes and basis its arguments from the fact that the previously implemented laws. As well as practices such as the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program, otherwise referred to as PDMP failed to bring the desired outcomes concerning significantly reducing the overall cases of drug overdose. On the other hand, the mentioned program played a huge role in that it formed the foundation for understanding the potential impacts that the federal FLORIDA HEALTH LAW ISSUE 10 and state government`s involvement in matters pertaining to the health of the general population may bring on the reduction of a drug overdose. In this case, the plan helped to reduce the witnessed cases of prescription drug overdose amongst the population but with a small margin. It then follows that the current legislation seeks to create a policy that contains a set of laws that in the end will help in reinforcing the previously enacted legislation on the issue of a prescription drug overdose. Following the information given above, another study completed by a group of authors who include Surratt et al., (2014) looked into the issue of the potential decline in the overall mortality rates as a result of the intervention using the legal actions in Florida. In the study, the authors focused on the description of the possible effects that the legal and legislative interventions may bring to the state concerning the reduction of the overall prescription drugs overdose amongst the populations. The paper highlights the legislative actions that the state took since 2010 which sought to gather information about the prevalence of prescription-related drug overdose in the region. This paper highlights the basics and effectiveness of the two plans the government implemented with the aim of preventing or controlling the overall level of drug overdose from the general public based on the legal interventions put in place. Based on the given data, the authors concluded that the implementation of the legal and regulatory interventions in the state helped to reduce the overall diversion rate of the prescription drug overdose. The study reported that an increase in the intensity of the various legal aspects played a considerable role in the reduction of the overall level of prescription drug overdose amongst the populations. In this case, one can then conclude that an increase in the implementation of legal actions against the issue may bring about a positive outcome from the reduction in the overall overdose cases from the general population. FLORIDA HEALTH LAW ISSUE 11 Finally, a study conducted and completed by Paulozzi, Strickler, Kreiner & Koris, (2015) sought to gather data about the controlled substance prescribing patterns while at the same time comparing such information with the effectiveness of the prescription behavior surveillance system based on findings collected from 8 states. The study focused on the determination and examination of the possible effects of the various prescription behavior monitoring systems that the state implemented since 2010. The study concludes that the implementation of the various strategies and monitoring systems played a huge role in the overall reduction of the rate of prescription overdose that may arise in the state. The study compared the results and data obtained from 8 states concerning the overall rate of death that occurs from a prescription overdose. Policy history Florida in the past before the enactment of the mentioned policy operated with a set of laws that sought to reduce the overall rate of deaths that are associated with prescription overdose. As mentioned throughout the literature completed above, various legislations have been put in place prior to the enactment of the mentioned policy with the aim of curbing prescription overdose and the resulting mortality rate.
